Aquinas Academy Parents’ Association (AAPA)

The AAPA is the primary means by which parents are involved with the Academy, providing many committee opportunities for parent participation as well as coordinating large fundraising efforts to support major projects on campus. By supporting the school through volunteering time and talent, parents also get to know other parents. All parents/guardians of Aquinas Academy students are automatically a member of the association.
